AMD… There is Hope!
New Treatment for Dry AMD Approved!
And now there is hope! Nova Oculus has been approved by Health Canada as a treatment for dry AMD!
The Nova Oculus III treatment device from Nova Oculus uses very small doses of electrical energy (microcurrent, similar to those from a TENS unit) to revitalize macular structures and slow down the progression of dry AMD. The Nova Oculus treatments are administered using a unique goggle around the eyes. They are totally painless and take only minutes. Extensive studies have shown the treatments to be very safe, effective, and helpful for those with dry AMD vision changes.
Electrotherapy in medicine dates back to the Romans, and one of its earliest uses in successfully treating visual system disease dates as far back as 1801! Scientific discoveries over the past several hundred years have proven that the basis of cell activity in the body is electrical. So, it makes sense to treat many conditions that weaken or disable cells with small amounts of electrical stimulation.
